In recent years, countries like China, UAE, Morocco, South Africa, Australia, Chile and USA gave bigger support on concentrated solar power (CSP) industry. However, “high cost” is always a big question, for which 2 ways are taken: Expand CSP capacity to realize better scale effet; More devote on R&D to get technological breakthrough.
Solar Tower (ST) and Parabolic Trough (PT) are currently two major CSP technologies, which sub-system/component has greater development potential in future?
Normally CSP system consists of three parts: Solar Field, HTF&TES and Power Block. Which specific topics under the sub-systmes do you want to learn?
Besides single CSP power plant, CSP could be applied in many other fields. Which of the listed applications are more commercially valuable?
